Johnny Cash’s Last Interview
Here at Classic Country 1000 KXRB we have what we call “core artists”. These are the relatively few artists who define what we are.
Those artist’s would include Buck Owens, Charley Pride, Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton, Willie Nelson, Left Frizzell, Hank Williams and Merle Haggard just to name a hand full.
And then there’s Johnny Cash, The Man in Black. Johnny isn’t just a “core artist” at KXRB…he’s a core artist in the history of music in the 20th century.
Go ahead, name the hits of Johnny Cash in your head. Start back in the 1950′s on Sun Records, go through the Columbia records years and right on through his “American Recordings” towards the end of his life.
Don’t worry, you won’t be able to name them all. There’s too many.
Here, about 3 weeks before his death (and after the passing of his beloved June), Johnny sits down for his final interview.
